‘Hotel Rwanda’

17 Dec

Hotel Rwanda would make an interesting choice of related text for Year 12 students.

The film explores the Rwandan genocide and offers an interesting juxtaposition of the horrors committed by some and the humanity exhibited by others.  In doing so, in facilitates discoveries about people, places, society and the world more generally.

It could be a particularly interesting text alongside Guevara’s The Motorcycle Diaries as both are inherently political in nature.  In might also shine alongside some of Frost’s poetry which prompts reflection on, and discoveries about, people and their relationships with the world.
